A public meeting will be held in the Public Hall, Tenby, on Wednesday, December 29th, when an addresses will be given on "The Budget" by Mr Edgar Jones, of the Welsh National Liberal Association. All the catering arrangements in connection with the coming-of-age celebrations at Lydstep were personally supervised by Mr Hudson, the enterprising manager for Messrs. Georges, Limited, Cheltenham. *+« Lord Charles Beresford will address a meeting of electors at Pembroke-Dock next Monday night in support of the candidature of Sir George Armstrong, who will contest the Pem- broke Boroughs against Sir Owen Philipps, the sitting member. Mr James Davies, of Baldwin's Moor, will preach at the Tenby Presbyterian Church next Sunday. The evening service will be devoted to praise, when special hymns will be sung by the congregation, and popular sacred choruses will be rendered by the choir. Excellent photographs of Mr Arthur Smith, the well-known amateur Ten by rider, appeared last week in the Daily Mail and The Throne. Mr Smith, who is the son of Mr C. S, Smith, of Norton House, Teuby, gives high promise as a rider, and his performances up to the present have been exceptionally creditable. Sir Owen Philipps, K.C.M.G., M.P., is laid up at his London residence with a severe at- tack of lumbago, and as a consequence will be unable to attend the meeting of the Pembroke Boroughs Liberal Executive arranged for to- day (Thursday), at which he was to have been selected as the candidate for next month's General Election. In view of the hon. mem- ber's inability to attend, the meeting has been postponed for the present. p+4 Foundation stones of a new Congregational Chapel at Milford Haven were laid last week, the ceremony being performed by Sir Owen Philipps, K.C.M.G., M.P., Miss Ada Thomas, Mr S. M. Price, and Mr Robert Cole. At a luncheon held subsequently, the Chairman, the Rev. D. Garro Jones, had Sir Owen Philipps on one hand and Sir George Armstrong on the other. The new church will cost £6000, and the congregation has raised £2500. Messrs. D. Edward Thomas and Son, of Haverfordwest, are the architects. .+- The Great Western Railway Company announce that arrangements have been made for the collection and prompt delivery of Christmas parcels in all the principal towns on their system. The charges for conveyance for short distances are lower than those by parcel post. During the busy Christmas season, it is important that all parcels should be fully and legibly addressed, and the address cards firmly attached. As an extra precaution a duplicate label should be enclosed with each package, so that the name of the consignee may be ascer- tained in the event of the outside label becoming detached or defaced. There was a large entry at the Narberth twenty-second annual show, held at the Victoria Hall yesterday (Wednesday), and the quality of the exhibits was of a high standard. The president was Mr Barclay Walker, Wood- house, the vice-president being Mr H. E. E. Philipps, Picton Castle. Mr James Owen and Mr John Harris were the secretaries, and the judges were as follow :—Dogs, poultry, pigeons and cats, Mr L. P. C. Astley, Homestead Manor spaniels, game and bantams, Mr B. R. Rowe, Porthcawl cage birds, Mr Trevor Gamage, Swansea corn and roots, Mr J. C. S. Glanville, Lanteague garden produce, Mr J. Evans, Picton Castle butter, Mr J. T. Evans, Clynderwen dead poultry, Mr D. E. Reeves, Whitland eggs, Mr J. E. Lewis, Narberth. Mr Baring Gould, in his "Family Names and Their Story," traces in a very interesting man- ner the influence of the Flemish element in British surnames. Florence of Worcester re- fers to the settlement of the Flemings in Pembrokeshire by Henry I. in the following words:—"And so it was that these strangers settled there as loyal men to the King and he placed English among them to teach them the English language, and they are now Eng- lish and the plague of Dyved and South Wales on account of their deceit and lies, in which they exceed any settlers in any other part of the island of Britain." The same reviewer says that it will, or should be, some comfort to Mr Lloyd George to know that, etymologically, his name is the same as that of the immortal Jorrocks. That fact may serve to explain to him the possession of those sporting instincts too strong to be restrained until a game license could be procured. There appears to be some foundation for the complaints of the decadence of modern English criticism.
DEPARTURE FROM PEMBROKE-DOCK. The First Battalion Welsh Regiment, Lieu- tenant-Colonel Scliofield in command, left Pem- broke-Dock last Friday evening en route for Cairo, Egypt. The regiment, which had been quartered at the new Llanion Barracks, assem- bled on the parade ground between six and seven o'clock, and headed by the regimental band, which played Ap Shenkin," the regimental march, and "The Girl I left Behind me," marchedvÏct Ferryside Street, Water Street, and Dimond Street, to the Pembroke-Dock Railway Station, where they entrained for Southampton, and on Saturday embarked on the transport Plasty for Alexandria. From there they will proceed by train to Cairo. At the railway station a large number of people had assembled to witness their departure. A detachment of the regiment, 200 strong, left Pembroke-Dock by train on Thursday evening for Southampton en route for Cyprus. A large crowd also assembled to wish them God-speed, and the men who, seemed to be in the best of spirits and very en- thusiastic, sung "Auld Lang Syne" heartily before leaving. The regiment arrived at Pem- broke-Dock from Bordon, Aldershot, in October, 1908. It was previously stationed at Pembroke- Dock from November, 1892, to July, 1895. I

It is with much regret that we have this week to chronicle the death of Mrs James Bowen, the wife of Mr James Bowen, formerly station- master at Tenby, which occurred at her resi- dence, No. 24, Victoria Street, Tenby, on December 3rd.

The funeral, which was largely attended, took place at the Tenby Cemetery on Tuesday, December 7th, the first portion of the service being ab St. Mary's Parish Church, of which Mr James Bowen has for many years been one of the churchwardens.

RESULT OF THE P05T MORTEM. Mr Herbert J. Price, coroner for Pembroke- shire, held an inquest last week at Temple Bar, near Saundersfoot, on John Thomas, undermana- ger of the Bonville's Court Colliery, Saundersfoot, who died on the previous Sunday morning. The deceased, who was in his 83rd year, had worked at the colliery for 63 years, and had an extensive knowledge of the coal measures in the neighbour- hood. Alfred Thomas, a son of the deceased, who also works at the colliery, stated that on the 30th November he saw bis father in the office. He told him that he had slipped off the wheel of a tram while down in the "New Deep." Dr. Clement Evans, of Saundersfoot, who had at- tended the deceased, said he could find no injury to the ribs, or any external injuries, in fact. He found that the lungs were congested and that pneumonia was developing. A post mortem ex- amination made by himself and Dr. Giles showed that miners' disease" had affected the lungs, which were quite black. The base of the left lung was pneumonic. The other organs were in fair condition. The jury returned a verdict of Died from pneumonia." In reply to Mr Dyer Lewis, H.M.I., the Coroner said he regarded thia as an open verdict. They were of opinion that an accident did happen, but whether it caused death they did not say.
A QUESTION OF RENT. At Narberth County Court on Monday, Judge Bishop had before him the case of Elizabeth Evans (who was represented by Mr Wilfred Lewis) v. G. J. Collins, auctioneer, for JE31 16s., the proceeds of a sale at Woodford. Mr Collins had paid the amount into Court. Mr W. Howell, solicitor, Llanelly, owner of Woodford, who was represented by Mr Marlay Samson, claimed the £ 31 16s. for rent due Michaelmas, 1908. His Honour referred the matter to the Registrar to ascertain the amount of rent due at the first date.
ILLEGAL DISTRAINT. Mrs Howell, of East Atheston, sued Thomas Williams, County Court bailiff, for alleged illegal distraint and damagos. Mr Ivor Bowen appeared for plaintiff, and Mr Marlay Samson for defen- dant. A jury was empanelled in this case. It was stated that plaintiff had notice to quit Returno Farm on September 29th, 1909, on which date he left, and the new owner and occupier took possession. It was further stated that on the 30th September, 1909. Thomas Williams, acting on the instructions of solicitors, distrained plaiutiff's goods—which were unsold at a previous sale, and left on the farm by consent of the new owner—for £81 for rent and tithes. The jury found that the distraint was illegal, and assessed the damages at £20. His Honour allowed costs on the higher scale.
